The Pacific Northwest Xeriscape Garden

.


Provided is the list of plants to support a drought

tolerant environment.

These plants were planted in the spring and required

frequent watering until I felt the roots were well established.

After all my hard work, the first winter provided wind

chills below zero and majority of the new plant growth

was killed off. Lessons learned, if I knew of a hard

winter storm was approaching, I applied a heavy mulch

over all the shrub plants and in addition to a layer

of plastic over the top. This saved the plants which

were not hardy and or established.. At one time I had

Coronilla vaira “Crown vetch” and removed

it due to it’s invasive nature. This section was replanted

with Black eyed Susan’s.

This is the fourth summer and all have matured to healthy

specimens. I never water unless the plants look really

bad. Mostly the trees need the watering.
